Slow Cooker Creamed Corn

We cannot emphasize enough how simple this dish is. You literally just throw it all in the slow cooker and that’s it! It is always the first side-dish to get polished at the table and everyone is always wanting seconds. It is also easy to multiply to make large batches for holiday potlucks. Everyone will rave over it, but only you will know how easy it is. I have made this both with fresh corn and frozen corn and both turn out great. Of course, fresh corn is slightly sweeter, crunchier, and fresh. However, if you are in a hurry or don’t have access to fresh corn, frozen still tastes great.

You can make a quick version over the stove if you are looking to make it quick (instructions included below) but the advantage of making this creamed corn in a slow cooker is so the corn has time to absorb all the cream. Trust me, it’s worth it!

Health Benefits of Corn

Because of fad diets and misinformation over the past decade or so, corn has received a bum rap. There are many health benefits to eating corn. Here are just a few reasons corn should be included in your diet:

  1. Corn is rich in vitamins A, B, and E. Vitamin A, also known as retinol, increases the immunity and helps the body to fight infection. It helps with eyesight and dry skin. The B vitamins in corn help maintain nerve health and cognitive function. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that reduces the risk of cancer and heart disease, and improved the immune system as a whole.
  2. Corn is a source of fiber. Fiber aids in digestion and promotes colon health.
  3. Corn is abundant in minerals such as magnesium, zinc, iron, and manganese. These minerals are essential for bone health, regulating growth, heart health, and maintaining healthy kidney functions.
  4. Corn contains phenolic phytochemicals. Phytochemicals can help regulate insulin in the body which helps control diabetes and hypertension.

    Mmmmm … I just love creamed corn! But what’s especially awesome about your version is that I can make it in my slow cooker. Seriously – that is such a huge bonus at busy holiday times, when my oven and stovetop are already jam-crammed full with other recipes! Thanks for this little lifesaver!

    This is the best side dish! I love how it only requires a handful of ingredient s and its easily made in the made in the slow cooker!

        1. If you use corn on the cob, cook the corn on the cob first and then cut it off and follow the recipe.

    1. Honestly, you can use what you like best! We typically use 2% because that’s what we have on hand. Great question, thanks for asking!
